Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all... I'm working on a paper and would like to reference an authoritative article that reviews or presents breakthrough data showing neurogenesis occurs in the human brain (not just animals) and perhaps also the relationship between neurogenesis and plasticity. I found a few articles that seem appropriate but would like to hear from any experts who are aware of better and/or more recent research in the area.

1) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1664671/
2) https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S089662730800901X
3) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2373759/pdf/nihms45130.pdf

From what little I can grasp of these, it seems like these are in order of most important to least but still all have relevance. I think...

Are any of these particularly good references indicating neurogenesis in humans?
Anything better/newer/more authoritative?

Thanks,
Dave.

I am not current on that subject, however, if you have access to a research library, who cold look over different text books on Developmental Neurobiology. These should have fairly recent information and references to articles.
Another source of newer information might be articles in the most recent years of the Annual Review books of relevant subjects like Neuroscience, Cell or Developmental Biology.

Thanks for the feedback BillTre, Ygggdrasil. I was under the impression neurogenesis was fairly well established now but it sounds like it might still be contentious. My understanding is that most cells in the body (all but brain neurons?) replace themselves every so often, depending on the organ.

Hi Laroxe, Thanks for that. I'd say that puts an end to my search for a reference.
